First Letter of Captain Marque

Humanity's long pursuit of freedom is full of desperate complaints
against the Crown. Rulers and subjects alike have penned countless
flowery documents claiming to limit the Crown's hostility with signed
agreements. But today any observer can see that all these poetic social
contracts have been impotent to prevent the Crown's predation, or worse,
they have authorized it. Those they propped up as our liberators are now
subsisting on our bondage. Limited government is a lie they cultivated
to keep us submissive.

Stripped of its grandiose rhetoric, the essence of the Crown has always
been rule by force. Every euphemism has only enshrined the violence
inherent in the system, embodied not only by the enforcers, but in every
courthouse, school and post office. Everywhere the Crown tells you,
"Obey, or else." Well, I've had enough of centralized force.

I am no revolutionary. I have no desire to reform your system, or run it
my way. If you want your servile life, keep it. But know that the Crown
can never be trusted to abide by its founding charters, nor to keep its
treaties, nor even to play by its own rules. Put simply, the Crown
cannot be trusted. That's why I raised my black banner. Why I'm opting out.

The folly of revolutions is that they only reset the cycle of violence.
My aim is to break that cycle, and abandon the madness of expecting
different results. My aim is an evolved society of individuals,
invisible to the Crown. And, evolution requires viable mutation, not a
new hierarchy, but new modes of horizontal innovation.

Liberation requires collaboration between free thinkers without
infringement or censorship. In another age, we could meet in public
spaces. Today, avoiding the Crown's surveillance requires we exchange
encrypted communication.

Energy independence turns the gears of the visionary's imagination, and
grants us individual control of our modern lives. No meaningful
alternative to the Crown's system can be achieved without exploring
decentralized energy production and storage to create heat, power and
incredible new tools.

Flourishing in our new autonomy requires that we construct secure
habitats in which to dwell. Cutting edge materials and methods provide
unimaginable new options, allowing us greater mobility, and access to
many previously uninhabitable environments.

The privateers of the Crown have turned our food and water into subtle
poisons, making us vulnerable in mind and body. Therefore it is
essential to cultivate our own heirloom nutrition and healthful water to
repair and improve our bodies.

The Crown has conspired with the medical industry to ensnare us in a web
of control and dependency.

To avoid their notions and potions it is essential to take
responsibility for our own health, and pursue sound medical science.

The Crown has claimed regulatory control of every means of conveyance,
stifling the free travel of individuals and their property. This is an
intolerable act. Superior transportation technologies already exist, but
are suppressed by regulations.

Humanity's labor has been greatly expanded by the use of machines. We
must maintain decentralized automation for the future use of labor
saving and humanity serving tools, or we will be victims of the Crown's

Living in the information age has not insulated us from misinformation.
When the Crown controls education it controls the very lens through
which we see the world. Above all, we must teach truth to our young, to
let them see the world as it is.

Obviously this is not an exhaustive list of all the tools at our
disposal. The truths of the natural world work just as well for us as
for any others. The road ahead requires vast and decentralized efforts
and experimentation by diverse and disconnected parties. The strength of
a network is not in it's unity but in it's decentralization, leaving no
one point of failure, no centralized figure, no critical junction for
the Crown to target.

So, bow down to your finely-dressed abusers, if you wish. Let them pat
your heads as they slip their hands in your pockets. We won't force you
live our way, but we will not submit to living your way. We are not your
property. And, when you are ready to stop being their beast of burden,
ready for adventure and opportunity, come join us on the high seas. We
will not be hard to find.
